What a treat! Jackie Warner rocks! "This Is Why You're Fat" (And How To Get Thin Forever) A book that is loaded with some new ideas. For example, drinking a decaf green tea in the evening increases L-Theanine a chemical that releases dopamine and serotonin this regulates the appetite, a persons mood, energy and cravings, it also contains compounds that block fat storage. She says to mix the green tea with a herbal fruit tea for extra flavor. Of course there is her eating 5 meals a day, eat before hunger pangs hit so your food isn't stored as fat, drink 3 liters of lemon water a day, a lot of information on what to eat and why, examples of meals. The 5 days of eating clean and having 2 days of being allowed a'cheat meal" Then Jackie gives even more! Exercise moves, detailed pictures making sure to inspire and educate.

I have struggled with my weight ever since I knew what "fat" meant. Reading this book, I realized not only how to lose weight but what it is that has made my body look like it does right now. Jackie understands that it isn't just about diet and exercise, it's about a whole new vision of the life you have and the one you want. Anyone who is overweight should read this book. It's a real eye-opener.

    WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR

    A very readable book that makes you more comfortable with that excess weight. What I have read so far makes so much sense. The excerises are very doable even for a mature person, over 60. Well worth worth the money.

    WOW!

    Im buying the book right now! I have to say that I'm not a reader, I mean I really hate to read, but this sample has me more amped up than I've ever been about any book or diet on the market. I feel like she is really in touch with common people in todays real world.
